The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 194,500 average annual openings for registered nurses between 2020 and 2030.[i]
36% of hospital nurses say they will continue working as nurses but seek a new place of employment.[ii]
Nursing shortages continue to affect every state, especially in the southwestern US.[iii]
You have been warned! There is a nursing shortage. Nurses are working harder than ever. We know they are there to keep us safe and when something goes wrong in our care or treatment, many will blame the healthcare system and the people who work in it.
Now, more than ever, you must act and get involved in your own care and the care of the people you love. Or you can become a professional support person assisting the patients and families who need extra help and support.
Nursing care has a significant impact on patient safety, which affects clinical outcomes, patients’ satisfaction with the care received, and nursing personnel’s satisfaction with the care provided. [iv]
Almost every morning on Long Island we hear about nurses striking, or a shortage of nurses.
What Can You Do?
Attend Pulse CPSEA’s intensive 2-day Family Centered Patient Advocacy course. Become a trained patient safety support person/advocate and learn how you can support your loved ones as they navigate the healthcare system. The days of being timid and feeling vulnerable are over. You have been warned!
Don’t expect the nurses or any of the medical staff to get it right 100% of the time. Discover how errors happen, understand who’s who in healthcare, study effective communication, learn about bias, how it can affect care, and what to do about it.
